Coot shoot

As a child one of my favourite little water birds was the moorhen and I can remember seeing a coot for the very first time and wondering if it was, in fact, a moorhen with a white head! Here is a coot shoot … a few pictures of a lovely, friendly little water bird donning a very charming white top knot.

I don't think I've ever seen one of those before. That is just the neatest looking bird. I love the white head with the black body.

I have almost always learnt a thing or two at your blog. Today, I know of a new bird called coot. If I were to see them, I would have said it is a duck. :)

So there really is something called a coot! Not just an old coot LOL! As always, lovely pictures, thanks.
